Security—Our Priority One

We know data is critical to you and your business, so our highest priority is on maintaining security and privacy of your data. That means operational, user, data, application and transmission security. It’s our servers, but it’s your data.

Let's say that again: It’s your data. And only your data. Only your authorized users will have access to your data and dashboards stored in Tableau Online..

There are many angles to security, and we’ve got all of them covered. Read this whitepaper to see all the details on:

  • How we store your data
  • How data is transmitted from server to browser or mobile device
  • Who in Tableau can view it (a very, very select few administrators)
  • How we do backups
  • And much more

Learn more about Tableau’s cloud security in this whitepaper.

What our customers have to say.

Shelter Island Risk

“Tableau Online is a great solution for companies like ours who have clients with a few users and who need to deploy solutions in multiple organizations… and who don't have the infrastructure to create their own server installation.”

Elite Brands

“The biggest benefit is to be able to access a large amount of information from anywhere you have web access, specifically on an iPad. This is beneficial to our field sales team when information is needed on the fly.”

Herring Creek Capital

“We got our hedge fund up and running with Tableau Online extremely quickly. It’s helped enormously with the flow of ideas within the team.”

Interactions Marketing

“From the time we enabled the Tableau Online with the back-end data sources I think it took us weeks compared to the in the past it would have taken months.”
